Volcanic Activity in Great Limber

Back to our website: Village Stores

David has been trying to devise a volcanic birthday cake. The idea is to bake a sponge, then hollow it out underneath to take an empty plastic jiff lemon, so its top pokes through the surface of the cake. Inside the lemon is a balloon full of lemon juice with a pile of home-made sherbet sitting on top (bicarbonate and icing sugar 50/50). When the time comes, you poke a cocktail stick down the neck of the lemon, burst the balloon, and the lemon juice causes the sherbet to froth up and erupt, covering the surface of the cake. Early experiments have not gone too well, though....
